Annan Confers With Turkish Prime Minister In Switzerland
New York, Jan 27 2006
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s proposal and plan of action on Cyprus was reviewed today by Secretary-General Kofi Annan in a meeting between the two leaders at Davos, Switzerland.
“The Secretary-General has undertaken to study that plan,” a spokesman for Mr. Annan said in New York. The Secretary-General and the Prime Minister also reviewed the outcome of the Palestinian elections, according to spokesman Stephane Dujarric. “They agreed that the will of the Palestinian people expressed in the 25 January elections must be respected and that the international community must help the Israelis and Palestinians move forward,” he said.
Asked about the Secretary-General’s response to the Prime Minister’s plan, the Spokesman said that the Secretary-General will study the plan, consult other key players and contact the Prime Minister to determine the next steps and how to proceed.
Earlier today, before leaving Davos, the Secretary-General met with UN Goodwill Ambassador Michael Douglas. He also met with UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie and actor Brad Pitt last night.
